Ali Wong’s Milk & Money Tour

Ali Wong is a stand-up comic from San Francisco, now living in Los Angeles.

Her first Netflix stand-up special BABY COBRA was filmed when she was 7 months pregnant.

According to the New York Magazine:

“The special’s arrival on Netflix is the sort of star-making moment that unites the tastes of the unlikeliest fans.”

Emily Nussbaum hailed it as “funny and refreshingly rude.” The day before its premiere, Wong’s interview with Marc Maron on his podcast WTF was released. He called the special “the most honest, rawest, funniest special I’ve seen in years.”

She soon after became a very popular Halloween costume. Fans, both male and female, dressed up in Wong’s iconic red glasses, black and white striped dress and pregnant belly. The Smithsonian has asked Wong to donate the actual dress, shoes and necklace she wore in the BABY COBRA, to the Museum of American History in Washington, DC.

Ali’s second stand-up special, HARD KNOCK WIFE premiered on Netflix on Mother’s Day 2018. Her feature film, ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE, which she co-wrote and co-stars in, debuted on Netflix May 2019 to wide critical acclaim. In the first four weeks, it was seen by 32 million viewers. Last Halloween, fans have continued to dress up as Wong in the striped dress, in the leopard dress and as her character, Sasha Tran, from ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE.
